The Police Amateur Athletic Foundation was founded in 1978. Since then, there has been 30 years of outstanding athletic achievements and performances by our members. These dedicated officer / athletes from the San Jose Police Department will be honored each year. Each individual works hard each day as a police officer, then takes that extra step to be an excellent athlete. PAAF is proud to honor these officers with induction into the Police Amateur Athletic Foundation Hall of Fame.
The 2017 Hall of Fame inductees are Lt. Guy Bernardo, Sgt. Jorge Gonzalez, Sgt. Lamont Cusseaux, and Officer Will Smoke.
